Christmas in India acquires distinct local flavours as regions weave in their own traditional customs.

It’s that magical time of the year – the aroma of freshly- baked plum cakes has begun to permeate the air, Church choirs are rehearsing their carols and children are drawing up their list of demands for Santa Claus, as Christmas trees and decorations glitter in the market. As the word celebrates Christmas on December 25, various regions in India also soak in the spirit of the festival and commemorate the birth of Jesus Christ in their own special way. Here are six among them.


KOLKATA
Park Street was the social and Christmas capital of the country till the 1960s. The Naxalite years and the economic decline under the Communists killed its vibrancy.Christmas decorations are sold in the center of New Market, an iconic Kolkata building.   The highlight of the Christmas Festival is getting cars off Park Street (officially, Mother Teresa Sarani). On the Sunday before Christmas, there’s a four-hour parade, led by schoolchildren. On Christmas Day itself, Park Street is out of bounds for cars for most of the day – from 2.00 pm to 10.00 pm.

KOCHI
In Kerala, Christmas is celebrated in the traditional way, with a dash of local flavour. Devotees gather in churches across the state for midnight mass. Several days prior to Christmas Eve, homes, shops,malls and offices are decorated with signature Christmas adornments, such as a crib, a traditional Christmas tree and stars of varying sizes and shapes. In the evenings, carol groups visit homes, a popular practice particularly in the countryside, where the groups are much larger. Come Christmas day, and a customary feast involving Friends and relatives takes centre stage. Among the most revered churches where Christmas is celebrated is the St Francis Church in Kochi, believed to be one of the oldest built by Europeans in India. It is also where Vasco da Gama was buried before his mortal remains were exhumed and taken back to Portugal.
CHENNAI
Tamil Nadu also celebrates Christmas with cheer. Churches are brightly decorated with lights and see large gathering for midnight mass. The Santhome Cathedral Basilica in Chennai, the capital, attracts a lot of visitors. The Church is built over the tomb of At Thomson, one of the 12 Apostles of Jesus Christ.

GOA
Christmas celebrations in Goa go beyond the gates of the churches and spill over into the streets for everyone to enjoy and take part in. It is a time for merrymaking and exchanging gifts. Christmas in Goa is also about delicious cakes, puddings and delectable local dishes. Churches across Goa, such as the Basilica of Bom Jesus, Church of Our Lady of Rosary ( the oldest surviving Church in Goa) and Church of Our Lady of Immaculate Conception, reverberate with hymns and prayers. Do not forget to visit the markets of Mapusa and Panaji for Christmas goodies.

SHIMLA
With of without snow, Christmas in Shimla is magical. Churches across the city, especially At Michael’s Cathedral and Christ Church, wear a festival look and have a steady line of visitors all day long. Church going crowds throng The Ridge and Mall Road to feast on special cakes and pastries baked for the occasion and ring in Christmas day with great fanfare.

SHILLONG
Christmas in Shillong comprises visiting friends and family to exchange greetings and sharing special festival delicacies. Families lay out a generous spread of dishes for visitors, the most popular being dohneiiong, a meat- based delight, and a traditional Christmas cake. Midnight mass sees the Cathedral Catholic Church filled to the doors while Christmas cheer resounds across the hills. Shillong boasts an egalitarian society, which is best reflected during Christmas day when people visit orphanages, old-age he’s and hospitals with food and gifts.

MOBILES THAT WERE A NUISANCE AT ONE POINT OF TIME ARE NOW A MIRACLE

What is unusual that you see a person without cell phone. Every single person has a cell phone be it the normal keypad phone or a smart phone of old or new model. These devices have completely changed our lives and the way we communicate. It presents us the easy modes to communicate that are cheap also. Sending text messages, reading emails, playing games, reading and editing documents all has become so easy and comfortable. It would not be an exaggeration to comment that if leave home without a wallet it is manageable but moving out without a cell phone is so difficult. Invention of cell phone is definitely the most phenomenal inventions of the modern age.

We all our addicted to the cell phone and any addiction is bad. Several researches have been conducted about the side effects of cell phone. They are blamed to hinder human relations. They reveal too much of information that can be harmful. They have ended being instruments of constant interruptions. There has been increase in accident cases due to the usage of cell phones. Memory and brain health is adversely affected by cell phone usage. The list goes on and on and all of adversities is listed on the cell phone. However there are certain things about the cell phone that in spite of being a nuisance we cannot do without them.

Getting to the importance of cell phone here area few points:

1] THEY MAKE COMMUNICATION WITH FAMILY, FRIENDS AND COLLEAGUES A LOT EASIER- Consider those old times when there was one telephone in the entire village how would you communicate with your loved ones. Moving ahead in time we reached the phase when there were cell phones in each house still if a family member was out communicating with them was difficult. Today once your loved one is out of your sight even miles away you can easily communicate with them. Be it bad weather or any worry you can easily connect to them with the help of this little master. Many of our worries gets sorted all because of this cell phone.

2] THEY COMBINE THE GOODNESS OF NUMEROUS USEFUL APPLICATION IN A SINGLE DEVICE: Think of the days when going for an outing you had to carry wallet full of cash in order to avoid any shortage, but with the fear of theft, a camera good music system, some books and magazines and buying the  newspaper on daily basis to keep yourself updated, a tour guide of the place still there were things like the daily news or release of new movie that you had to miss. Now when planning to travel all you need is a cell phone. It facilitates cashless economy, thus no need to carry so much of cash, apps to predict the weather, inform of the latest news or read books or still better watch the full movie. A mobile comprises of everything. Apps help to book hotels, read the news or search best locations or famous shops of the place. Is not this cool and money saving option.

3] USEFUL IN EMERGENCY SITUATIONS- Cell phones do not provide any guarantee but they can be of immense help in situations of emergency. Suppose you see a lady who has met accident on the road all you need to do is use her cell phone and contact her family members. Without cell phone this situation would have been so difficult to handle. How to about the whereabouts of the person and how to proceed all this would have been so chaotic.

4]EASE YOUR WORK- Earlier to pay bills of electricity or phone or to book tickets you had stand in queue for such long hours and waste so much of time. There was a situation where you had gone out for your favorite blockbuster and in spit of standing in the line for an hour you could not get the tickets. Wastage of time and resources. With the cell phone you can pay your bills at a go and book the tickets from the comfort of your home. Easy and quick. Shop vegetables, groceries or even clothes from the comfort of your home from any country of your choice that too at the time you wish to do so.

I completely believe that it is one of the biggest boons that the world has ever seen. And all I can say is that haters will hate, so what is your take on this?

The Annoying Advice Always Receive

We live in a world where everyone has some advice to give it to others. Be it eating healthy or settling in life, people will bombard you with useless and junk advice everywhere. Some people prefer to dig their nose into other’s business and they considered themselves only on earth with brains. But, it is majorly the other way round which they fail to understand every time.

The world is filled with idiots only a sensible set of people roam around who prefer to mind their own business. An advice and loan should never be given to others unless it is asked for. Several people fail to understand this common thing.

Here is The Annoying Advice Everyone Gave Me, and it was totally at random place.

1. When will you get married?

Really? Why should I answer you? Are you going to pay for the wedding outfit or for the food? Okay, at least are you going to sponsor for my honeymoon trip??.I guess this is the most common advice each and every girl receives on their graduation day or after finishing education. The total number of congratulation messages are unfortunately less.
2. Watch what you eat else you will put on weight
I mean how does it bother anyone. I think nobody should question me unless I am literally taking the food from their plate. Being a grownup adult, it is very obvious for me to have a bigger appetite. In fact, I love to enjoy and eat each dish. It is just me and i serious get annoyed when someone advised me to watch what I eat. Not buying your piece of crap.

3. When are you going to have kids?
I have literally stabbed those people in my mind some 100 times who have asked this question. If it is for some close friend of mine, I answer them “until we run out of our condom stocks”. It is totally my husband and my choice to start a family, why should I even tell you about my personal things? We will start when we are ready. Anyway, you are never going to pay the hefty school fee of my child .. right ?? any sponsors there ??

4. Breastfeeding is the best way to lose the baby weight
Oh, this is my favorite when it comes to annoying advice. After breastfeeding my child, I eat like a hungry pig and I actually gained a huge weight . I was only eating almost everything on earth. This is the worst advice for those ladies who cannot breastfeed their little one. weight loss is only possible with clean eating and proper exercises, we all need to face the reality.

5. Parenting advice

First people advice you with different conception methods and then they want to take classes on parent and upbringing your child too. They advise you on everything starting from feeling, bathing, peeing, pooing and what not. I don’t know from where they have actually gain all the knowledge . I think some people got advice for every parenting need and they can gladly write a book.

We all must be surrounded by those advisers who volunteer themselves to sort out all your issues in no time with their golden advice, but my sincere advice to them is please stay away, we actually are not interested in your peace of advice.

Ruk jana nahin tu kahin haar ke, My all time favorite song

“RUK JAANA NAHIN TU KAHIN HAAR KE KAANTON PE CHAL KE MILENGE SAAYE
BAHAAR KE O RAAHI O RAAHI.”

Old is gold, a soft melodious song, penned by Majrooh Sultanpuri for the movie Imtihaan, sung by Kishore Kumar and composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal. This song tops the list of favorite songs of the legendary cricketer Ravi Shastri. This song never fails to inspire any person.

The words “ruk jaana nahin… stop not till your goal is achieved…a quote backed up by Swami Vivekananda. The way to success is never easy or smooth. There is no statement like blessed with success, it is always like achieved with efforts.
The Sun rays break only after the darkest hour of the night passes. Success comes to them who have earned it, people born with silver spoon also need to work hard in order to achieve success, even their money cannot buy the success. It is true that we all are blessed with one talent that opens the door of success for us.

If we do not work hard towards polishing that talent we are at loss. Today we say that person achieved success because he was immensely talented. That’s not true Sachin achieved success, because he worked hard consistently hard towards his goal.

“Kaaton pe chal ke milenge… every path has obstacles and we need to overcome them. Say for Sachin his height was an obstacle when competing with international players. Although overcoming the obstacles gives you a sense of accomplishment and gets you charged for the new challenges of life.

Life would be so dull and boring if there are no challenges to overcome, no achievement achieved with hard work to be celebrated.

Saaye bahaar ke… it is only hard work and dedication that can lead to success. Sachin is called the Master Blaster or is a legendary cricketer, only because of his unputdownable and unstoppable efforts and hard work. A person who wants to taste the success, has to make so many sacrifices. Every single day poses new challenges new hardships that have to be removed.

This was an old melody that holds substance till this day. The lines of the song help you to move on in life. It states the basic principle of life “ no pain no gain”. A very beautiful song that can be called synonym to this old age melody has beautiful words “raat lambi sahi, phir bhi yeh raat hai subah ho jayegi sou baat ki ek baat hai, phir jaagegi yeh fiza”.

One thing should always be borne in mind that no matter what era we belong to, what is our situation it is a statutory fact that has passed the test of time success is directly proportional to hard work. To conclude I would say dream big, so big that the dream scares you, but work harder that it paves the way to success. The whole universe inspires you and helps you to achieve success, the only condition is that do not give up!

DIWALI CRACKERS SALE GETS THUMBS DOWN IN DELHI NCR.

Delhi NCR the polluted state of the country and the levels of pollution rise to an alarming rate after the Diwali celebrations. There is so much of pollution in the air that seems to full of smog and the visibility drops down.

Coming to the matter burning of firecrackers during the festival has increased to leaps and bounds making Delhi the worst city of the world. That kind of air is unsuitable for anyone to breath. The three bench comprising Justice AK Sikri, Abhay Manohar Sapre and Ashok Bhushan have made the decision to be implemented till November 1 that the crackers will not be sold in the Delhi NCR.

The sole intention of the ban is to test the quality of the air or let us hope that this ban brings some positive effect on the air this Diwali. The situation will be reassessed before and after the Diwali to check the quality of air. However there is ban on the sale of the crackers and not on bursting the crackers, so it is a half ban that will not completely solve the issue. Rather it would lead to black marketing of the crackers and this is a greater violation of law. This would affect the mentality of the kids as it will clearly highlight the socio-economic difference in the city between the rich and poor.

However the health activist are welcoming this decision with heart as they are seeing it as a drive to clean the air. They claim that pollution is as it is five times higher than the safe standards and this gets aggravated to 10 to 12 times during the Diwali period. The supporters of the decision are not against the celebration bet they are supporting celebration in a different way. The ambient air quality should be 60 micrograms per cubic meter in any 24 hour cycle. This is alarming in Delhi as being 300 and during the Diwali period it goes high up to 700. Diwali
is the festival of light and not crackers so light your houses rather than bursting the crackers and polluting the environment.

This ban is a good move towards the betterment of the quality of lives in Delhi NCR but there are so other triggers that are causing the damage to the environment. To maintain internal law and order and prevent any unrest in the
society the Government, Supreme Court and other governing authorities should try to sit together and frame the laws that suit the interest of the community as a whole. The duty of common people here being is to support the authorities and help in the smooth implementation of the laws.

We need to rise above the religion and community and join our hands together as Indians and help the government in implementing such laws and give the future generation the gift of clean and pure environment.

My Life Is a box of colors

Life is a mystery and constant journey that has phases. The beauty of life is not the destination but the journey.

Many times I have heard people saying that my life is black and white or every decision in your life has two aspects black and white. No I disagree strongly, life is colorful and it is you who decides the color of your life.

Let us assume you desire to paint it grey, then it turns out to be dull and boring, add a splash of color to it, be it romantic red or the energetic orange or the lush green. Life is too short for not experiencing the beauty of colors. I am not against a color but it is the mix palette of color that attracts me. A monochromatic painting looks good for a while but thereafter your eyes start to look for something that has vibes of all the color.

One can say that too many colors or feelings may be too much to handle or grasp, is not life all about a learning expedition? You experiment and mix different colors bring different colors and create a rainbow for yourself.

Coming to the tones of colors, black a bad color no definitely not as much as it represents the bad or negatives things it also symbolizes secrecy in your life. One has to agree that color black teaches the most as it is the negative things that make you stronger and let you enjoy the other colors of life. Also it symbolizing secrecy shows that always revealing too much and in front of unwanted people may lead to serious consequences. Thus even black has significance in your life and that too important.

White a color that represents peace and harmony and also loneliness, a color that we desire yet we dread. We all desire that me time but when we get it we try to rush back to the pinks and blue of life and of course the red. Pink the cute little angel and blue the little man of your life. And red is the backdrop of your canvas giving the extra shine to all the colors. Red color or the color of love adds meaning to your existence but the same is also the color of danger, the impending danger. Love takes you to heights but when shades of obsession and jealousy engulf it, it tends to be self-destructing.

Green the color prosperity has a special significance in your life as it inspires you to grow and provide shade and comfort to the ones who require it. Alarming is the color green as when you help others you are yourself exposed to the hazards.

All the colors are beautiful and add to the beauty of life. It is on us as to how we take the colors and involve them in our lives to make it a masterpiece!
